Earlier this week, we were delighted to know that Atlanta Housing Source was selected as one of the top 50 Gwinnett County businesses out of more than 20,000 other businesses. We are looking forward to seeing if we actually made the Top 25, but we are thrilled we made it to the Top 50!
Here is the criteria for the award.
Every year Small Business Week honors the estimated 30 million small businesses in America that employ more than half the country’s private work force, create three out of every four jobs, and generate a majority of American innovations. In support of National Small Business Week, the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce will honor Gwinnett’s top small businesses of the year at the Pinnacle Small Business Awards on Friday, April 23.
The Gwinnett Chamber’s 2010 Pinnacle Small Business Awards will select Gwinnett’s top entrepreneur as its Small Business Person of the Year as well as the top businesses in three categories (1-9; 10-99; and 100+ employees). The overall Small Business of the Year winner will be eligible to participate in Georgia’s Small Business of the Year competition. With the challenges facing small businesses today, this year’s process will focus more on the company’s response to adversity and service to the community
Nominee businesses must:
- Be a Gwinnett Chamber member and be headquartered in Gwinnett
- Demonstrate an increase in sales and/or unit volume
